Finnegan Foundation Provides Opportunities for Pennsylvania’s Future Leaders

HARRISBURG – Applications are now being accepted for 2022 summer internships in state government through the James A. Finnegan Fellowship Foundation.

“This is a great opportunity for Pennsylvania’s future leaders,” said Senator David G. Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill).  “The Finnegan Foundation allows college students all across Pennsylvania who are interested in politics and government to take their experience to the next level.  If selected, a student has the opportunity to receive a paid state government internship in Harrisburg.”

In order to apply for the Finnegan Foundation’s 2022 Summer Intern Program, an interested student must submit an essay between 1,500 and 2,500 words. The subject for this year’s essay: Should Pennsylvania continue to use their current system for redistricting or join other states in creating non-partisan commissions to carry out this decennial process?

Full details on the Finnegan Foundation’s Summer Intern Program can be found at this link.  Students have until January 28, 2022 to submit their essays and other materials to the foundation.

Senator Argall is a former Finnegan intern and currently serves as a Board Member for the foundation.
